Abstract

Teaching university students who have grown up with digital technologies presents new challenges for today's educators, who find themselves struggling to bridge the gap between the legacy educational system and an emerging but still undefined new paradigm. Students of the post-digital era have distinctly different cultural and social differences from their predecessors that require a new understanding of their learning needs and challenges. In this chapter the author summarizes generational differences between the current cohort of college students and their predecessors. She reviews and reflects on her experiences with the Digital Learning Initiative and proposes a new focus and approach for moving forward in the classroom.
